A 3D Printer For Pills Brings The Pharmacy To Your Home
MIT innovation gives patients the tools to print their own medication
MIT researchers have unveiled an on-demand pharmacy that can “print” drugs for patients in their home. The picnic-cooler-sized device takes raw materials and combines them into personalized doses of prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Similar in concept to a 3D printer for items like clothing, technology and prototypes, this gadget has the potential to change how people receive and take medication.
